Alexander McQueen | Women's 2013 Autumn /Winter Collection

The ecclesiastical wardrobe, from communion gowns to cardinals' robes. The high church. Nuns, popes, angels. Ballets Russes. Virgin Queen. 

The collection comprises ten looks, presented in pairs. The waist is cinched and the hips are exaggerated throughout. Volumes are overblown but lightness is paramount. Hyper-worked embellishment demonstrates an obsessive attention to detail -- and detail within detail. Sharp pressing, multiple folds, quintuple and dégrade pleats, soutage embroidery, triple bulleting, silk and metal thread embroideries and more all feature. Rhombic grids lend a sense of graphic modernity to surfaces. Pearls and teardrop pearls evoke beauty and rarity. Hoop skirts, caging and corsetry enhance and idealise a quintessentially feminine silhouette and introduce an erotic undercurrent further suggested by lace incrustation and harnessing. Each look is worn with an embellished ruff: faces are framed. -Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen | Spring /Summer 2013 Collection

THIS SEASON SEES THE RETURN OF A HERITAGE SILHOUETTE. WASP WAISTS AND A CONSTRUCTED HIP EXAGGERATE A FEMININE SILHOUETTE.

Signature tailored jackets are layered over jewelled, moulded resin bustier tops and sheer, mid-calf length honeycomb pencil skirts, or cropped panelled trousers. A play between covering the body and discreetly exposing it is seen throughout as the transparent is juxtaposed with the opaque and garments peel away from necklines and shoulders. Lightness is paramount: intricately woven jacquards, lacquered lace and laser cut patent leather hover over silk organza. Cages, corsets and crinolines in various incarnations are worn as underpinnings or as finished, elaborately embellished pieces in their own right. Every aspect of the foundation garment and the transformation of the body that is a hallmark of the house of Alexander McQueen is explored.

“The collection is a study of femininity. We looked at erotica. Vargas girls, cages, corsets and crinolines and the idealisation of the female form. Nothing is set in a particular period. It’s about sensuality and skin but not nudity. We also wanted to express lightness, for the clothes almost to hover over the women who wear them.” Sarah Burton

Prada


Prada  was established in 1913 by Mario and Fratelli Prada. And, in its heyday was a premier purveyor of luxury leather goods and accessories. The Italian royal household granted the use of its coat-of-arms on the fine luggage sets, made from walrus and alligator. European aristocracy came calling, including Princess Grace of Monaco.

By 1970, the heavy luggage was sorely out of vogue.

Prada's revitalization began in 1989, and, as Miuccia Prada, the granddaughter of Milanese designer took backpack fabric for her spring 1995 collection, Nylon became the byword of fashion-forward cool.

At various points, Gucci, Fendi, Azzedine Alaïa, Helmut Lang, and Jil Sander were held in part or in total by the Prada Group.

In 1992, a sister line, Miu Miu, made its debut. Bearing Miuccia’s own nickname.

Prada has numerous signature pale-green boutiques around the world.

Photographer Nelson Blanton captures full, fluttering dresses in the wind, peaking the excitement for the new trends coming to fashion this fall. Jelena Vujanovic, Paris based fashion designer’s line Vilorija, has evolved into a line that is full of feminine flair and European appeal that can adapt when paired with LA’s mod contemporary flavor. The use of metallic bows reestablish the allure of lustrous fabrics while reviving the staple 90’s trend of black, velvet.

LAPRIVY Magazine takes you behind-the-scenes at Style Fashion Week

PU3 | Spring-Summer "Untamed Collection"

On October 19th, LAPRIVY Magazine brought a breathtaking ensemble to the runway of Vibiana, showcasing collections by PU3, iiJin, and Masai Payan. The show, punctuated with non-gimmicky “wow” factors throughout, achieved an almost orgasmic effect toward the end. I found myself sighed with satisfaction aftermath.

The collections presented were stellar.  The show captivated my attention with superb atmosphere modulations through sounds, runway attitudes, color tones, styles, and surprise performance, keeping it raw and engaging.  I also appreciated that 3 distinctively different styles of designs were introduced with PU3 elegantly sensual and exotic, iiJin ultra charming, flirty, and colorful(it’s “oh so LA” in all the good ways), and Masai Payan devine, heavenly, and regal. I need to break down my coverage to 3 different blogs each dedicated to one designer lest this blog gets unbearably long. Here is Part 1 for collections by PU3.

PU3 is designed by the Ramli twins from Malaysia with international appeal. They give each collection such poetic theme  names such as “silent revolution” “liberal Rebel” and, for this particular one, “untamed.”  The naming seems to reveal their desire to break boundaries and such desire increasing in strength with each collection. I find their style sophisticatedly sensual with exotic flair.  While the “untamed” element is not pronounced to me, this collection has its own unique allure.

I found few looks particularly breathtaking, beckoning with the hues evoking African safari imaginations.  One such look exudes animalistic exoticism – exemplified by a sandy brown blouse of flowing material in tiger(or of sort) fur print matched with a peplum in the same print softened and diluted.  Another look oozes feminine earthiness- a black bodysuit with asymmetrical shoulder cut matched with a thigh- lengthed shawl in geometric print featuring prominent use of red mud color.   The mastery manifests in that these prints, while eye-catching, still grounded with modern finishings, such as solid color definitions and water color-like appearances, preventing them from being flashy and out-datedly gaudy.

PU3 designers incorporate details that elevate their designs from mediocrity to appealing, asymmetrical decollage on the flat of the chest and front waist, sequined flounce belt, snake-skinned glitter print sheath just to name a few.  Those details are incorporated in such ways that give enough “oomp” to the design but still maintain sophistication, without a hint of trashiness.

Until next time! - Anita314
